Robbie Laird

LAYERED WATERMEDIA PAINTINGS—FLOW AND FORM
The Synergy of Ebb-and-Flow Painting


This workshop is based on Laird’s inspiring premise about “Informed Intuitive” painting. Become more spontaneous without being out of control!

Working from their own sketchbooks, photos, and other resources, students are supervised through thoughtful exploration of a subject to first become informed. Students are then guided to make intuitive choices about technique and design, while painting. Painters will be encouraged to identify and capitalize on painting strengths and personal style.

There will be opportunities to experiment and learn layering techniques in both watercolors and acrylics.
Watercolor effects include addition of gouache & watercolor crayons and resists.

Acrylic techniques include, textural mediums and iridescent paints for a variety of effects.
Robbie will share some techniques she has been using in her newer work, that were introduced in training at the Golden Paints lab, and... a special bonus will be the opportunity to try samples of some Golden Acrylic mediums for special textural effects and some of the newest colors from Graham Watercolors.

Open studio time is planned for afternoons. Participants work from their own photos, sketchbooks, and other resources. During this time Robbie will give individual assistance with mini critiques, instruction and demos as needed. Each painter will be encouraged to identify and capitalize on personal painting strengths, and may use watercolor or acrylic and a variety of mediums to create layered effects in their paintings. Realistic and abstract painting are equally encouraged.

Robbie has a reputation for encouraging painters to breakthrough to new levels of freedom and confidence in painting. Experience the Synergy of Ebb-and-Flow Painting in this "Informed Intuitive" painting workshop.
